Day of the Dead


Mexican tradition have many ways they honor the dead, one way is they celebrate day of the dead and in english it is referred to day of the innocents. on October 31st they celebrate children and on November 1st they celebrate adults. I took this picture at my best friend Karens house. This is a similar alter table like the one I have in my house. Her grandfather recently passed away in Mexico over the summer and this is in memory of him. They set up a photo, candles and flowers and offered fruits, vegetables, tamales and a beverage in respects of his passing.  I think it is great how different cultures have different traditions but are all similar and this is a beautiful way to remember my best friends grandfather.
